Invitations are encouraging!
Even if you are unable to attend a party, receiving an invitation helps you know you are wanted, loved and welcome. This is the tone with which God invites his children into closer communion with him.
“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.” (Jeremiah 33:3)
As we lead our children in family devotional rhythms of prayer, Bible reading, story times, and many other opportunities showcased here, let’s assure our kids that God is inviting us into this. Instead of saying, “Now it’s time to pray” or “You must read your Bible now,” we can respond in grace by telling our children, “God is inviting us to pray and learn about him. Let’s enjoy him!”
